Days in the Diocese

Days in the Diocese is a program associated with WYD run by the dioceses of the host country. It is an opportunity to engage with a local diocese and have a cultural and religious exchange over several days prior to the World Youth Day week. Days in the Diocese is anticipated to be hosted beyond just Panama, in Costa Rica, Nicaragua and possibly Columbia.  More information on this will be available soon.

Mission Opportunities
The Hosting of World Youth Day in Central America offers groups the opportunity to include mission encounter and or work as part of their itinerary. This was an outstanding and powerful experience for groups who participated in similar opportunities in conjunction with WYD Rio.
